Personal Training - Remote / Online
"Lee has been my PT for sometime and I was worried at the thought of seeing my fitness disappear during lockdown. So I was relieved and delighted when he quickly and seamlessly moved his PT training online. With a combination of 1:1 Zoom sessions, group workouts and a real good, personally tailored programme to use on my own, I've been able to keep up my exercise levels, and just as importantly develop a routine that helps to stay positive. Lee is always great at advising and motivating - and adapting exercises for use outside the gym. Working out with him has been a real anchor for me at the moment." - Cheryl M., August 2020.
"It has been great to be able to keep my PT going online over the last few weeks with Lee.
After having been training with him in person for around 5 years, I’ve really valued being able to continue with it online at the moment.
I am enjoying it a lot and it’s surprising how much you can do without too much equipment. I’m feeling the benefit as much as a face to face session and definitely do a lot more than I would on my own!
Would highly recommend Lee, whether it’s for online training at the moment, or in person in the future." - Cian P., August, 2020.
"Lee's classes have been my saving grace during this lockdown period and I’m definitely beginning to see the results! A great combination of classes mixing my odd run with the core, HIT and stretch classes have worked wonders. Im now feeling an all round fitness and energy I never had before. No excuse not to have those summer abs in order by the time we are all let loose!" - Kath W., August 2020.
"Great online workouts to keep moving whilst locked up! I feel much fitter after 2 weeks, and can’t wait to carry on! Workouts are brilliant with options available for all levels! Real feel I’ve worked out after just 30mins!
Can you carry them on after we are all released again!" - Jon H., July 2020.
"After working on my own to lose a ton of weight, Lee is now working with me to further the weight loss and increase my strength. Three weeks in and my mobility is way up, weight loss is steady, I am toning up well and I feel like a an absolute powerhouse.
Lee gives confidence when teaching methodologies and makes me feel totally at ease.
Absolutely highly reccomended!" - Terry C., July 2020.
"Online training with Lee was brilliant. Am so delighted he is so tech savvy and adaptable. To be able to continue with my 1-1 programme at home will keep a semblance of normality in these strange new times. I don't have a lot of equipment but a mat, some resistance bands and weights were enough to do everything we needed. With my screen facing me Lee could check I was doing things correctly and I could see and hear him perfectly. I found the toast rack the perfect ipad stand! There's no need to stop training. You can still stay fit and reach your goals with Lee." - Louise B., June 2020.
"My wife and I started Lee’s online zoom workouts at the beginning of the UK’s imposed coronavirus lockdown measures in March. Since then we’ve subscribed to his running strength and conditioning workouts each Wednesday, as well as the flexibility, mobility and stretching sessions on Saturday morning.
The workouts so far have been brilliant for us. They’re friendly, easy to follow along with, perfectly pitched in terms of complexity of movement, and Lee is able to add further challenge to the exercises to anyone who wishes. We’ve absorbed so many tips and invaluable advice already (and we consider ourselves competent, experienced runners/cyclists). I think a lot of runners completely ignore strength work and rehab, preferring just to run continuously until they’re injured or burn out; we now fully appreciate how many of those ‘niggles’ can be avoided completely with a bit of physical preparation and by looking after your body properly. Lee’s workouts really target running specific issues, as well as correcting some ‘working from home’ postural weaknesses that can creep in. In such a strange period of global chaos which is having a huge effect on our daily lives and routines, having an opportunity for maintaining and even improving our physical and mental well-being that we can join from our home has been superb.
We highly recommend the sessions, not just for runners, but for anyone who wants to feel better about themselves and help prevent future aches and pains from exercise. Thank you, Lee!” - Mike and Rosie H., June, 2020.
"Great session lee! How about this quote ‘Better and Harder than Joe Wicks – one for getting fit rather than just staying healthy and the family loved it." - Steph and Chris P., May 2020.
"Lee has been great during this lock down period. We’ve been in touch weekly - he’s adapted my gym workouts to make them work at home (with different equipment) and has been on hand to give advice and alterations as I progress. Would certainly recommend him! His virtual workouts are good too! Cheers Lee." - Kaylee S., May 2020.
"Having been trained by Lee in the Oakfield Gym for a couple of years, I was keen to keep things going during the lockdown to support Lee but also try and maintain at least some level of fitness. With the need to travel with work removed for now, I have actually had more regular sessions than I did before. We have the same routine over Facetime as we did face-to-face and I am pleasantly surprised at how well it has worked. With minimal or no gym equipment it is possible to train at the same level of intensity as I was doing before by focussing on specific muscle groups and then getting the cardio sorted out by running and cycling.
To his credit, Lee has really made this work and provides the same level of communication, enthusiasm and encouragement over my iPad as he does in the gym. For anyone who has any reservations about distance personal training I would urge that person to simply give it a go." - Jonathan O., April 2020.
Personal Training - 1-2-1 in Person
"I have been training with Lee since February after starting to take control of my habits in January after just being totally fed up with my weight and general lack of energy. At the beginning of this journey my starting weight was around 104kg.
With Lee's expert guidance and considered attention to detail on my plan each week between February and July I had managed to shift about 28kg and since then I have been maintaining a healthy weight of around 76kg. I am so much more flexible, energetic, happier and generally in much better shape than when I started, along with being able to recover from periods of exercise incredibly quickly!! I have now achieved all of my short term goals, I am currently maintaining my weight while working on long term goals of increasing overall fitness and strength with Lee's help.
I was able to meet up with Lee once a week, run through the various different exercises that would be in my own personally tailored plan and then execute in my own time during the week with my own limited set of equipment at home. All of the exercises were crafted with what I had available to me at home and was honestly surprised at how much you can do with very little and how effective some seemingly simple movements are! I found Lee to be very resourceful and creative when it comes to being able to do quality training in various scenarios. I had considered joining a gym, but I just haven't had any need to with this training regime.
Even during the current Covid epidemic, Lee has very swiftly switched to providing the same excellence in PT services via video call which quite honestly is just as effective if not better than attending the studio in person. He is still perfectly able to describe and demonstrate the new movements alongside assessing my progress all via what was effectively a new medium for him to deliver training from, which is outstanding.
One of the great things about Lee is that he is able to provide an empathetic level of encouragement, he understands that we are all human and cannot be perfect all of the time, along with being completely different in the way we improve. There is no aggression, just consistent calm, constructive and positive reinforcement, which goes a long way towards helping people succeed.I would without question, highly recommend Lee's services as a PT to anyone. When I look back the difference to my wellbeing is huge and I have him to thank for it." - Terry C., Nov 2020.
"Lee was recommended by a friend. He has now been training me for over 3 years and thanks to him, I am not only fitter than I have been before, but also stronger and have improved my balance and co- ordination. Lee’s exercise programmes are tailored for each client, and he keeps a careful note of all that we do, and makes a very varied plan each time, so it’s never boring. Though at times the work is hard, he increases the workload gently and you are never unable to do something that is set. Lee will never allow you to do any exercise unless you can do it correctly, and he always checks posture and that the correct muscles are being used. Lee is very able to adjust his programme to fit your particular need on the day, and always asks how I am in case there are any niggles or anything that needs to be avoided. We are always training for my sport, which is ski touring and mountaineering. So our programme is very different from what others are doing in the gym.
Lee is also a trained sports masseur and enjoys yoga, so can always help to release tight muscles through manipulation or stretching. Oakfields is such a small and friendly gym. I have got to know all the trainers and everyone is super friendly. They have lots of great equipment, which is usually used for effort training, but the focus is on free weights and doing exercises that you would not normally do on your own in the gym. I do a lot of balance work on the Bosu ball. The Ski Erg machine is a real bonus for me and boxing is great fun.
I feel lucky to have such a great trainer. I simply couldn’t do it on my own." - Louise B., January 2019.
"We’ve been seeing Lee for over 18 months initially to help rehabilitate after constant back pain. Lee is clearly very knowledgable about injuries and prevention and our fitness and strength have improved dramatically. Lovely guy and we look forward to going every week." - Louise C., January 2019.
"Lee is a fantastic personal trainer - I knew I wouldn’t respond to a shouty, boot-camp type experience so was really pleased that this isn’t Lee’s style. Instead he creates a really supportive, encouraging environment and is incredibly knowledgeable in his field, able to respond to all my questions and provide the science behind his answers. He has helped me decide on realistic goals and work towards them and most importantly has helped me to develop a more positive body image. As well as my weekly sessions, I find it really useful that he doesn’t mind receiving the odd message to answer questions, provide encouragement and help celebrate achievements." - Ali, September 2018.
"Having seen a chiropractor regularly for several years to temporarily manage and correct a back problem I was put in touch with Lee at oak fields about 18 months ago. The message on the back of his t shirt promised to change my life in six weeks. He probably managed it in five. My back problem was solved by building up core strength and then focusing on sustainable weight loss, strength and aerobic fitness. I am fitter at 46 than I have been for the last 25 years. All of the guys at oak fields are welcoming and friendly and the gym is a good place to be even at 630 am. Lee is harsh but fair and quietly gets the job done with a good sense of humour and even on those occasions when I clearly and vocally don’t want to get anything done. Thank you." - Jonathan O., November 2018.
"Starting at a new gym can sometimes feel intimidating and this had always posed a bit of a barrier for me. I found Oakfield's and have never looked back. Immediately feeing at ease with a friendly, welcoming environment it was just the type of gym I was looking for. I have trained with Lee for the past 3 years. He is incredibly professional, supportive and a brilliant motivator. Lee creates innovative and varied workouts for me every week to keep me focused and achieve my goals. Along the way I have incurred a few problem areas from participating in sporting activities. Lee he has identified these areas, built up my muscle strength and am delighted to say has kept me injury free. I feel very lucky to have Lee as my personal trainer and look forward to working with him for many years to come. I would certainly recommend Lee and the Oakfield team to anyone." - Kath W., December 2018.
"A highly knowledgeable, professional, empathetic, and flexible Personal Trainer with the experience to deliver … this man gets results - I’ve experienced many trainers and Lee is up there with the very best.' - Mike T., November 2018.
"When I started at Oakfields I had a really painful shoulder injury. Lee devised a work out for me with this in mind, it has helped incredibly and my shoulder is now fine. Lee pushes you enough that you are working really hard, but can still make it to the next session." - Lisa A., Decemeber 2018.
"Lee has been my trainer for over 2 years. His empathetic and encouraging style is perfect for me as he is able to scale exercise to accommodate my posture and injury problems in order for me to get the maximum from eacsession. I can feel the difference on the bike and in my day to day posture. I would highly recommend PT with Lee, he is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging." - Martin M., September 2018.
"Oakfield’s and Lee have helped me attain a fitness I haven’t had for over 20 years. The first 6 months were really hard but I now look forward to my PT sessions every week. All the staff there are very welcoming and make you feel at home whilst pushing you to your personal limits! Thumbs up all round!" - Chris A., December 2018.
"I have been training with Lee for over 4 years at Oakfields PT and would not hesitate to recommend him as an excellent PT. Lee's style of personal training works perfectly for me. I'm someone who has never especially enjoyed exercise, but Lee's friendly approach and well thought out programmes, along with his endless encouragement and support have been invaluable. Without him I would not have met my goals of getting fitter and improving my strength, flexibility and balance. I know that he is varying and intensifying the routines to be exactly right for me, and monitoring my techniques to ensure good results. I never expected to enjoy exercising this much - and Lee deserves the credit for motivating me to get moving and go to the gym twice week!
Oakfields is a great gym - it has a happy atmosphere, all the trainers are likeable and friendly and have a professional attitude to promoting the overall fitness of their clients. It's a pleasure to recommend them." - Cheryl M., December 2018.
"I first met Lee 15 months ago when I visited Oakfields Personal Training to discuss creating a weight loss program. I now see him for an hour a week and he can take a lot of the credit for the results I have achieved. From the outset, he worked around my abilities and physical limitations. As I have lost weight and improved my fitness and flexibility, he has altered my program to ensure I maintain the same level of exertion during our sessions. He mixes each session up, so I never know what he is going to ask of me and he blends cardio with stretches and core and resistance work, which ensures no one part of me is overworked in a session. Lee clearly takes a very professional approach to his job as a Personal Trainer, though this is balanced with a friendly, warm and supportive exterior. He takes time between sessions to plan my schedule and is on hand throughout the week to answer any questions or to offer up support." Tom, August 2016.
"Despite my stories of sporting prowess to my children, they were becoming all the more unbelievable by my body shape, fitness levels and niggling back pain. Combine that with a job that was increasingly restricting my exercise opportunities and some awkward holiday photos on the beach it was clearly time to take action.
I approached Lee Weston / Oakfields with a remit of wanting to lose weight, be fitter, have more energy, change my eating habits and untick many of the boxes for a heart attack. Oh and being able to run around in the garden or on the beach a little more thus making those stories more believable.
Lee totally understood my needs of mixing training inside and out to make sure I got lots of fresh air (and odd bit of rain built in). The programme was one that had me hooked in from the start tapping into my psyche and letting me see how I was achieving and working towards my goals within a couple of sessions. Within weeks everyone was commenting on how much better I looked. But no one could sum up how I felt. I was feeling great!
Due to Lee's careful planning, strength and conditioning exercises and understanding of knowing when to push me, not once has the back played up. In fact it has never felt stronger.
The benefits? I am much lighter (over 2 stone and counting), fitter, have lots more energy, sleep much better, more flexible have different eating habits (without being a food bore - there is nothing worse especially when a pie and pint and just so good!) and generally feel much more up for it.
I recommend Lee without hesitation. He is a genuinely motivational in what he does (without being all 'whoop whoop' about it) and has transformed me and put me on a sustainable pathway to a better place.
Only one thing left. For my children to believe those stories!" - Jim, June 2015.
"Finding an excellent personal trainer is not easy." - Nneka, January 2015.
"Lee came in to the office for the day after a very busy week for the team and wow, what a difference he made to how everyone felt. Professional, knowledgeable and along with the massage, we all were given great advice about stretching and exercises we can do at our desks. This was a brilliant investment for the team and we’ll definitely be doing it again – I’d highly recommend him." Gemma McGrattan, Director of Synergy Creative, September 2016.
"My back is honestly miles better, I felt really tired yesterday afterwards but woke up today feeling fantastic!! I will be back, thanks for your help!" - Anona, November 2015.
"It is feeling a lot better today (after a sports massage the day before). I don't have any pain in my neck at the moment which is amazing. Thank you so much" - Ruth, November 2015.
"Top massage a few weeks ago with Lee. Sorted those knots out and even text to check how I was the following day and to remind me to do my stretches. Cheers Lee." - Kaylee, October 2014.
"Amazing massage at Somersault Festival Lee, thanks a million!" - Kate, July 2014.
"The combination of an old sporting injury and very hectic job has meant that I get persistent back ache. I decided to treat myself to a relaxing massage and heard about Lee Weston through a colleague. He was recommended as being a highly professional and qualified massage therapist therefore I booked a one hour session. I can truly say it was the most relaxing and calming massage I have ever received. I felt the benefits for days afterwards and continue to return for regular massages to keep me feeling supple." - Serena, July 2014.
Comments from clients when I was working with Massage Me in the French Alps for the 2013-2014 winter season:
"Seriously the best massage I have had Lee."
"Fantastic treatment. Helped me relax and to get through the weeks skiing."
"A very skilled therapist who was able to focus and adapt to my needs. I get locked shoulders and he manipulated them with great skill. I have had many treatments so I recognise an excellent practitioner and lee was one."
"Lee was fantastic. He listened to me as I talked about my problem areas, and was attentive to the amount of pressure he applied, applying more or less as needed."
"Took great care to ensure that I was comfortable and happy with how the treatment was going."
"It was one of the best massages I've ever had!"
“After suffering with a damaged knee and many trips to the physio, with strapping and laser treatments I was still getting nowhere. After just two deep tissue massages with Lee my knee had improved hugely, more so than after any other treatment and I was able to take part in the triathlon that my sports physio had advised me not to do!
Great massage therapist, great personal trainer and a great person. I would recommend him every time.” – Heidi, September 2013.
"I had a massage treatment at my home from Lee and with having a knee replacement I was weary but had accumulated a great deal of muscular tension as a result. I was put at ease and discussed the treatment with him before we started. It was a great specific treatment to suit what I required. It was great to have a treatment in my own house too. He brought everything you would find in a treatment room." - Martin, August 2013.
"I had Lee design a training plan and nutrition advice leading up to a half marathon. I was very pleased with what he provided me and how well I improved with his help. I also have had Lee's help with taping of my knee and a shoulder injury, both from playing rugby. Lee's group "boot camp" style exercises are great fun! An all round excellent professional service with lots of enthusiam." - Paul, May 2009.
